Lollabrigida, 85, told authorities in Rome Sunday that her ex-companion married her by proxy in Barcelona by obtaining private documents from the 1950s film star. According to her and her lawyer, the alleged swindler has performed other cons in the past. Her relationship with the man in question lasted from 2006 to 2007. "I was going through a rough time and I thought that changing my life would pull me out of depression, but I would never have given my consent to marry," she said. "International investigations will take place because I want to shed light on this squalid affair and all the people involved".
